Notes

  • I used a chocolate devil's food cake mix, but you can use any type of dry chocolate cake mix.
  • Be sure the cream cheese is softened before making this recipe so that the top layer doesn't have clumps.
  • Add chopped nuts to the top layer if desired.
  • An offset spatula works great to spread the second layer. 
  • Do not overcook the double chocolate ooey gooey bars.  The top should be a little gooey!
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired, or serve hot with ice cream!
